Rate this:
In September 1942 at the height of the battle for the Atlantic, a German U-boat torpedoed the RMS Laconia, sinking the British ship without knowing that it carried more than 2,000 passengers, many of them civilians. What followed is a harrowing true story of heroism, heartbreak, and unexpected humanity in the midst of the bloodiest conflict in history.

very good indeed, German roles acted by German people not Hollywood imitations. A little known and disturbing piece of history. A library gem.
